"I'm hungry."

"You're hungry?" Corelle looks over at him dubiously.

"Absolutely famished. Aren't you, Son?" Jack looks across the table at Jax and makes subtle eye squinting movements for him to play along.

"Ahh, yeah! Dad and I didn't eat all day. Could you make us something to eat?"

"Hmmm... I don't mind, but I'm not a very good cook. Are you two all right with some mac and cheese?"

"Oh, that's great! Jax here loves the stuff!" Jack pats his son on the back. "You take care, now. Jax and I will be here waiting for you."

Corelle leaves but as soon as she's out of the room the pair follow her and then sneak past her to reach her bedroom. They enter quietly and Jack logs on the computer. "You keep an ear to the door," he says, "and tell me when she's done cooking or something."

"Uhh, yes, dad. But I'm not so sure Corelle's the one we should be spying on."

"What makes you say that?"

"She doesn't seem like that kind of person--"

"Jax, you've known her for three days."

"She's cute and cheerful! She's laughing all the time!"

"That's just a cover, and you know it."

"I just don't--"

"Really. This kind of behavior from you, I would never have expected. Luc, sure, but not you, Jax."

"I'm sorry, Dad."

"I'm done. Let's hurry out of here while you still haven't fallen for the girl."
